Community Leisure UK is committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion and condemns discrimination and racism in all forms. We recognise the presence of systemic inequality, discrimination and racism within our society and understand the role and platform we have to acknowledge, address and take action against it as part of our work as a representative body within the public leisure and culture sectors.

We aim to:

  • Create inclusive workplaces within the Community Leisure UK membership.
  • Improve the journey of being active and culturally engaged across culture and leisure trusts.

Leisure Factsheets Now Available (Updated 08/08/2022)

The Activity Alliance has released a series of 10 new leisure factsheets that cover a range of top topics from developing inclusive strategies to workforce development and measuring impact. They support leaders in the leisure sector to strengthen their inclusion work and engage more disabled people. 

They are available to download at the Activity Alliance website.

Resources – EmployAbility Leisure Guides

We are proud to be working with @AspireCharity and @InstructAbility to provide three #EmployAbilityLeisure Guides to help increase the number of disabled people training and working in the leisure industry.

You can now download these guides at https://bit.ly/37jqqJv

To support our members implementing the guides, Aspire is working with Sport Structures to deliver free online workshops which will support managers to review and embed the EmployAbility Leisure guidance in their own organisations. The aim of the session is to give individuals working within the sector the confidence and skills to create an inclusive approach within their workplace to give disabled people access to training courses and employment within the sector.
